A wise man once told me "to get ahead in this game it's not what you do, it's what you say you're going to do". He was talking about the civil service but i fear this still holds true. In other words, I'd love to compare the responses submitted by those invited to attend with the CVs of those rejected.

anyone here go?

was there anyone that creates music at it....?

JC has an overview up on OTR http://www.irishtimes.com/blogs/ontherecord/2012/05/28/a-week-in-the-life-of-music-3-0/

These are people who are doing really fascinating work in other areas whose stories, we felt, could chime with the participants in many ways. For all the myths and hyperbole about mavericks and rock’n'roll, the music business remains a bastion for conservatism when it comes to moving things forward and taking advantage of new possibilities. But many of the speakers have come up with instances of similar insitutional inertia in their careers and they showed how they sidestepped, shimmied or simply bulldozed their way through. The message was simple: it can be done. Or, in the words of Nichola Bates on the very first night setting a template for the week, “just fucking do it”. From accidental entrepreneurs to start-ups and back again, JFDI became a bit of a mantra.But the speakers were just one side of the equation. Watching the participants – who really deserve all the credit for us because they took a flyer on something new and untested and turned up every evening for more – interact with oneanother, swap tales and work out kinks in ideas as the week went by was quite fascinating. Our aim was to get people talking and thinking and it looks to me like we did that.

Sounds like a rally to galvanise the 'industry' and restore some confidence in the rock economy rather than a re-think of anything.

A sewing circle in someone's front room is 100% more punk than 99.999 percent of the music industry. Nothing wrong with industry per se but if you put it first everything that follows is bullshit and this initiative is industry-led. Eat my sour grapes of wrath!!
